How to transport a kayak?

Because of its untypical shape and size shipping canoes may be a challenge. Canoes are often shipped on top of the car. In order to achieve this you need to use roof racks with special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks in order for it to stay still and secured during a long travel may be tricky. There is an easy solution that makes it possible. Put some spongy material on the roof rack. It will be a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes should be secured on the roof of the car in an inverted position by particular stretchy belts connected to metal clasps. Use at least two straps. Also, remember to take an additional strap with you – on condition one of the belts gets ripped during transportation. When you ship a canoe using your car make sure the load isn’t too weighty for your car. It is extremely significant in case you plan to ship more than 1 canoe. Before you start the car check again if all the belts are installed properly. Don’t pull the belts too tight though. They could damage the canoes. On the way your freight isn’t supposed to relocate. If you catch any sound coming from the roof, pull over to rapidly examine the situation. Remember – not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having canoes on the roof ought to mobilize every driver to drive safely and not too fast. In addition, remember about pulling over from time to time to check the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. What is more, it is crucial to follow the road traffic regulations in your country regarding transporting a huge load. In some places drivers have to specially assign their load with flags or stripes. Check for any obligations according to local law. Do your research carefully before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, transporting kayaks by yourself is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that canoes are quite light they are also quite large. This is the reason why the smartest way to handle the issue is to hire a courier.
